A few weeks ago my wife asked me if I was still looking for a mower , she
saw an ad online ...
I am now the owner of John Deere model 317 yard/garden tractor with
hydraulics . The front blade has already gotten some exercise on my driveway
... the mower deck needs some pretty extensive repair , but I have all
I probably couldn't afford the hydraulic 3 point hitch made for this unit
if I found one , but I'd bet I can rig up something to use a plow and other
"farming" implements . That'll be a LOT easier on an old man than that
tiller I've been using !
Sounds entirely too much like a plan ... I'm betting I can source the actual
plow blade locally , fabricate the mount springs and framework in the shop
...and have an even bigger garden next year with less actual sweat equity .
My wife has no idea what kind of monster she created when she showed me that
online ad for a "lawn mower" .
